    Lightbulb Menstruation Emojis

    Might the stigma against periods with these menstrual emojis

    Bodyform menstrual emoji petition helps fight stigma against periods | Metro News

    Period emojis are here and they're bloody great

    Periods are a fact of life for most women.

    A regular occurrence. A monthly visit.

    In fact, more than 300 million women are having their period RIGHT NOW.

    Yet we don’t really talk about them.

    Packaging for tampons and sanitary towels feature words like ‘discreet’.

    Feminine hygiene adverts frequently make no mention of blood or PMS, but often show women dancing or hiking.

    You what? No thanks.

    But you better alert your friends. There’s a Code Red.

    30 rock

    We’re in the midst of a crimson landslide.

    The red moon is landing, etc etc.

    Soon you may be able to tell people what’s up without them looking grossed out or having to awkwardly mumble ‘women’s problems’…

    The fine folk over at Bodyform have launched these six emojis so you can convey your menzy feelings to your nearest and dearest without skirting around the issue.

    There’s these blood-stained pants, which pretty much say everything without words.

    Or the pad emoji.

    Maybe for when you’re running low and you need somebody to pick you up some supplies.

    So people know you’re in need of sympathy.

    Because the huge hormonal spots that appear every month are almost as bad as bleeding for seven-days straight.

    Finally, the half-crying half-bitch face.

    For when you don’t know whether you want to cry at a video of a cat or scream at a poor unsuspecting housemate who stole the last of the milk.

    Bodyform have launched a petition to get their period femojis on to the official Unicode keyboard, and therefore onto your smartphone.

    You can sign the petition here.

    Nicola Coronado, Marketing Director of Bodyform said: ‘Menstruation is a totally natural process – but we have all felt a bit shy about discussing it.

    uterus

    ‘We want to break down the taboos around periods. There are currently 1620 emojis on the Unicode keyboard, but for the important things in life, like our periods, there is no way to express ourselves in this new universal language.

    ‘And let’s be honest, if an aubergine can prosper on your list of frequently used emojis, we’re certain that you can find a million-and-one uses for Bodyform femojis.

    I want a "can't leave the house, I am going through a boat load of pads and I've run out of clean underwear and pants" emoji.
